Xirrus has announced Xtreme Density (XD) Wi-Fi, they claim is the highest density Wi-Fi Access Points (APs) that deliver the fastest Wi-Fi available in the industry. Designed to address the Internet of Things (IoT), Xirrus XD4 is a 4-radio all 802.11ac AP, supports four times more users, reduces the amount of equipment deployed by 75 percent and decreases total cost of ownership by up to 50 percent versus competing products.

Gartner expects 4.9 billion wireless-connected “things” to saturate the market by the end 2015, increasing to 25 billion by 2020. This exceptional growth in the number of devices, and more importantly the increased volume of application traffic, has already severely stressed Wi-Fi networks. With Xirrus XD, networks can scale to provide the connectivity required to deliver an exceptional user experience in the age of IoT.

Built to address the changing landscape of Wi-Fi, the new XD4 is the only AP on the planet that integrates four 802.11ac capable radios and optimizes performance with automated RF configuration. The platform automatically chooses the best available bands and power level without IT intervention and customizes client connectivity for the best performance based on the capability of each device.

In addition, the company announced today that it is shipping TurboXpress on all Xirrus XD access points. TurboXpress allows administrators to configure every radio on the AP for high-speed 802.11ac operation, with the click of a mouse, providing an instant Wi-Fi performance boost of up to 6x. The TurboXpress feature means that the Xirrus XD AP is the only solution in the industry that can add wireless capacity instantaneously without adding APs. In addition, TurboXpress provides unprecedented investment protection by enabling the ability to effortlessly address the ever-changing Wi-Fi landscape.
